What do you mean?
Explanation, please? Brain is frazzled.
I'm trying to make NPCs (like, random people you encounter in the town), but because I'm using my own style rather than RTP, I have to make all of them myself, but if I were to make two whole towns' worth of people, it'd take forever. Unless I just make the same four people and recolour them.
Recoloring isn't a bad idea, but maybe also change their hair with each color??
Just make a few variations. You really don't need to make lots of random NPCs.
All right. I mean, you don't really engage with them too much, so I guess it wouldn't be such a bad idea, as long as they don't look like the main characters.
Better to focus on making more important characters look unique. No one will remember random NPCs just milling about the place.
All of the humans have purple eyes, so that's even easier. XD
Take any of the pokemon games for examples. The only duplicated NPC who would truly stand out is Youngster Joey. Especially now that he has an Alolan counterpart.
You could also copy-paste bodies on different heads to mix up hair and clothing.
Interesting idea. Like a character generator.... OwwwO I have an idea now.
Separate names with a comma.
